Today on the 2 o'clock break we continue to explore holiday samples.
Today's song is a holiday track, but it's source if far from a Christmas tune. In 1997, Volume 3 of A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS was released.
This album featured a version of "Santa Baby" with an all star cast of rappers. Rev Run of Run DMC, Mase, Puff Daddy, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Salt-n-Pepa, Onyx & Keith Murray all rap on this track.
I was amazed when I looked at the song writing credits and saw Lauren Hill and Wyclef Jean. I then found that the main beat for this track, was actually from a Fugees song.
Check out the beat on this remix of "Nappy Heads."
